Areas of Costa Rica register temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius

San José, Mar 28 (Prensa Latina) The hot days and high temperatures (around 40 degrees Celsius) in some areas of Costa Rica will persist in the coming days, a report from the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) says.

During the first week of March Costa Rica faced the highest temperatures recorded until 2024 and a heat wave was registered during the first four days, meteorologist Luis Alvarado told El Observador.

A heat wave is a sustained event of extremely high temperature for a given region. It is measured in relation to the average temperature considered for the area. A situation that may be repeated in April and May, he stressed.

Due to the characteristics of the season, these are the hottest months; we also have the El Niño phenomenon, the zenital sun and climate change, which together lower the wind speed and increase temperatures.

They are going to create that favorable and ideal condition so that even heat waves are presented, we believe that again it can be repeated even with greater amplitude in the sense of more days, because the first one was of three to four days, these can be stronger and wider, he pointed out.
